She now works as a full-time Veterinary Nurse at Greencross Vet Forest Lake Village and just recently taken up the position as the clinic Practice Manager. “My life for as long as I can remember has been all about animals”. When I was in primary school, I use to pretend to be a Vet and practice on stuffed animals. I have a Ginger Cat named Tiger and a Pomeranian X Shih Tzu named Bella, who are my whole world and I love to bits. When I’m not work, I’m looking for ways to better myself and further my career.
